Take a look at this from the Bedlam Bards, the official minstrels of the Whedonverse. They got popular writing songs based on Firefly and Serenity, but sometimes they go into more interesting subjects.
If you saw Serenity, you know how it ends, with the crew uncovering a nasty secret the Alliance wanted to forget. Thanks to them, no one will. Anyway, the Bards wrote a "government-approved lullaby" to keep the public quiet. As you hear this, you can see there's a big connection to what's going on now. Just take a look.
